    avast free, w10 said it had closed all w10 security & I should uninsta


    I use windows 10 paid for with purchased PC.
    I installed avast free, w10 said it had closed all w10 security & I should de-install Avast s/ware, I did this using Avast uninstall s/ware downloaded from the i/net.
    After this I lost all my w10 features including i/net connection.
    Now I'm unable to do anything with w10 also cant re-install without an i/net connection.
    I've tried everything possible in W10 trouble shooting etc, modem shows as OK/drivers OK, nothing functions except programs/pictures/docs etc.

    What do you suggest, if anything, I have a backup but does not function without i/net connection?
    I've 2 other PC's, 1 W10 other W7 both paid for, both function with i/net etc?

    Thanks for any info in advance

    Very unusual message, possible malware. Check dencal's message above.

    I did as you suggested before also but tried again, It says 'unable to complete your request' also if I try the deleting files option.

    Thanks anyway!

    It looks like you will have to reinstall.
    Using another computer to make an ISO, all instructions are on the following link.
    When it asks for key ignore as it is embedded on motherboard.

    You will have the choice....my advice is to do a clean install as you have a suspect infection, and keeping your old files might be unwise, though you could try retaining them first......if unsuccessful you could always do the clean install
    Would suggest in future you do backups, then if you get infected you have something to fall back on.
